18 Karen Haddock – Triathlete Celebrates her Ability to Race

Karen Haddock on Sole Nation with Brook Kreder

Today I’m excited to share my conversation with Karen Haddock, a runner turned triathlete from California.

Karen kind of fell into triathlons after surrounding herself with triathletes. Her mindset of enjoying the races and taking joy in the fact that you’re able to be out there is so inspiring to me.

After a couple marathons and some triathlons (including a half Ironman!) she’s getting ready to ride the Tour de Pink, which supports The Young Survivors Coalition, an awesome organization helping young people battling breast cancer.
